Description

(7 Jul 2019) European cities celebrated LGBTQ pride on Saturday with colourful parades that also became platforms for political demands and a push back against far-right populist parties.In Madrid, police had to escort members of the Citizens party out of the parade after LGBTQ activists blocked them from continuing half-way into the course.The protesters, some of them hurling water bottles at the politicians, expressed anger over the centre-right party's close ties to Vox, an uber-conservative party that has recently made inroads in Spanish politics and that activists perceive as an instigator of homophobia.Vox officials, whose votes were key last month in electing a new conservative Madrid mayor also supported by Citizens, have proposed moving next year's pride parade out of the city centre, while regional leader Rocío Monasterio has said the celebrations "denigrate people's dignity" and include "explicit sexual acts in the streets."Beatriz Gimeno, a long-time LGBTQ activist and far-left Podemos (We Can) party lawmaker, told The Associated Press that "reactionary" remarks by the far-right were a reminder of how relevant the battle for gay rights remains.Despite the brief confrontation between politicians and activists, Saturday's parade was attended by hundreds of thousands in a largely festive mood.This year's events mark the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Inn uprising in New York against police persecution, a turning point in the modern gay rights movement.The Spanish capital's Pride has become one of the largest in the world. The official march preceding the parade called for better care for elder LGBTQ people and a nation-wide law that, among other long-running demands, would standardise rights for transgender people across the country.Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork Twitter: https://twitter.com/AP_Archive Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/APArchives Google+: https://plus.google.com/b/10201102858...
